Early Christmas

We celebrated Christmas early at our house since we are leaving for California in a few days.

Another Christmas outfit

And a visit to Santa Claus!  Finally Isabel is not scared, and Elliot could care less.  :)

All smiles

I finally caught the little guy smiling on camera: 

And I love this pic of Isabel - a morning of sledding and playing in the snow!

Its the holiday season...

Some pics from the entrance into the most wonderful time of the year.  

Some Elliot pics - growing so fast!!

At 7 weeks, Elliot rolled over from his tummy to his back, and has repeated it a few times!  He is a strong and active little boy.

A pre-rolling over pic

He has also learned how to coo smile, but I haven't been able to catch that on camera - so a few serious pics:

Isabel pics:

She has a good friend, James, who lives across the street, and they play just about every Tuesday:

Enjoying the warm late November weather with a picnic.

Thanksgiving was great - Franz's family came out and stayed with us, and we went to my mom's for a tasty meal.

Turkey Cupcakes! (made by me and Isabel)

We visited Park City with Franz's family
With cousin Alex

Then we started getting ready for Christmas!!  Isabel has loved it, asks to open presents every day, and has loved finding her Elf on the Shelf, "Flint Lockwood"
